• A cold front will cross later in the day Wednesday.
• Scattered showers possible, especially Wednesday afternoon, onward.
• An isolated thundershower is possible.
• Hints of fall Friday and Friday night.
• Dry weather and sunshine Saturday through at least next Tuesday.
Tonight will remain quiet with partly cloudy skies initially likely giving way to more clouds by morning. Lows will be dependent on the amount of cloud cover able to develop. If skies stay clear longer, mid 50s are likely, but if clouds arrive faster, we’ll likely stay around 60 to even the low 60s.
A cold front will slide through the area later in the day Wednesday and bring our next chance of scattered showers or an isolated storm or two. Humidity will increase a bit more again Wednesday and the chance of rain is 30%. Highs will climb to around 80. Some scattered showers are still possible Wednesday night with lows around 60.
Early Thursday, as the front slides east, we could see some lingering showers, but it will turn less humid through the day with highs in the low 70s. I’ll monitor for the chance of an isolated shower in the afternoon, but for now, I’m keeping us dry after midday. The chance of rain is 25%, but by the afternoon will drop to less than 10%.
An extended area of high pressure will settle over the northeast starting Friday. It looks to stay in control through at least next Monday. As far as temperatures, Friday will feel a bit like early fall with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. Friday night into early Saturday morning will likely see lows in the 40s.
As the high pressure slowly slides eastward temperatures will increase a bit each weekend day. Saturday should see highs around 73, and by Sunday we’re back into the mid and upper 70s. By next Monday highs temperatures look to be around 80.
